Out of Season
Travelling in the summer can be amazing, but discovering Europe in winter can also be a truly memorable delight. A winter getaway to Europe is a truly special experience. Travelling to Europe ‘out of season’ is getting increasingly popular as more tour operators offer their trips in winter. There are also a lot of advantages to travelling at this time of the year. For example, fewer crowds and smaller queues allow for a complete and satisfying experience of each destination you visit, you can view major attractions at a lot cheaper rate and get better service at local cafes and restaurants because of the season being less busy. Travelling in winter is also less expensive as it is the cheapest time to fly to Europe.
Enjoy some of Europe’s most exquisite Christmas markets on a wonderful winter guided tour. Join Trafalgar’s ‘Christmas Markets of Austria, Germany and Switzerland’ and be introduced to authentic seasonal delights such as Belgian Waffles and hot chocolate, German cinnamon stars, Swiss Fondue, gingerbread, and of course, the traditional Glühwein to keep you warm. This enchanting guided tour takes you from the magical Austrian capital of Vienna to the Swiss delights of Lucerne, while visiting Salzburg, Munich and Innsbruck along the way. Be entranced by the sheer joy and splendour of the glittering Christmas markets, indulge in the delicious Christmas treats and enjoy the magical winter wonderland.
Super Sports and Winter Walking
Ice skating, sledging and skiing are some activities that you can enjoy on a winter break. Ice Skating is a must during the festive season and Europe has some of the best outdoor ice skating rinks in the world. The thrill of skiing in the Swiss or French Alps and sledging is also a great way to experience the great outdoors during winter. If that’s too much activity, just enjoy the outstanding scenery covered in feathery snow and still frozen lakes. There will be so many great photo opportunities you’ll be spoilt for choice. Travelling by coach on a guided tour is also the best way to get the most out of a Christmas and New Year's holidays - so come and join us on a fabulous winter break and you'll wonder why you didn’t do it before!
